Powerful! Must hear! God bless you for this powerful message that I needed at this time. Truly, how can one fully submit to a God he cannot see when he cannot even submit to the human being right in front of him.
Refreshing So refreshing to hear God's Word preached in its original context and true intent. Thank you Voddie for studying scripture down to its core and seeking to extract God's truth in its entirety.
Very Educational Sermon! I found this a very interesting sermon. Mainly just yesterday I was talking about the history of the church and the beginnings of religion or the modern church. I found this way more detailed than what I had explained. Thank you for your sermons. God really is great in every way! God brings to end the questions we may have by bringing us together even though great distance divides us!
Previous Latin Translations The difference is that the Jerome‚Äôs translation was the first that translated the OT from the Hebrew. The Previous Latin version OT was translated from the Septuagint which is a Greek translation of the OT scriptures. Jerome was one of the few people that know Greek, Hebrew and Latin. Additionally, the previous translations lacked scholarship and readability. Some of the words were just transliterated from Greek to Lain, so they were shunned by scholars at the time.
Great Sermon! Awesome word! I love the 2 Peter 3 encapsulation toward the end of Voddie's sermon. Why hasn't all this (Revelation 19 and 20 stuff) happened yet? What are we waiting for? Christ has to save all of His people in time and in history. Not one shall perish of all of His.
Great Sermon! Excellent exegesis on Revelation 20:1-3!Voddie is a great expositor and has done an excellent job on his Revelation series so far.Since I have learned what exegesis & expositing scripture is,and how to do it,I always learn the most by those preachers who preach that way.Voddie is one of the few who actually do.We have a great shortage of expository preachers but thanks be to God who continues to provide sound teaching through the few that the church has.Iron sharpens Iron!
Good message Good and clear exposition of the details of the exodus. There is much to be learned from this part of the Bible other than just Israel leaving Egypt, and Dr.Baucham offers a tremendous amount of clarify about this part of the Bible.
Mixed reaction There's some good material here from Dr.Baucham, particularly the heavy emphasis he places on the importance of confessions and creeds, of which I'm in complete agreement.
Where I have some issues, though, is in how Voddie seems to downplay the importance of seminary in training and sending of men. I don't doubt that there are sharp men who can aspire to leadership, but neglecting seminary seems to me to be a mistake. How is a man getting the in-depth training to pastor a church when they're just doing this as a hobby, without any sort of background education in the subject? If a pastor won't bother with seminary then how deep is their teaching really going to be? I want my family taught by a man who's done the training, not someone who does it as a side-job and can't even read Greek.
Response to Faye from Atlanta The most subversive teaching that comes from Permanence ideology comes form those who teach ‚Äúindissoluble marriage.‚ÄĚ A percentage of these teachers feel it necessary to exceed the bible in order to resolve divorce and remarriage, they advocate that subsequent marriages after divorce should end. The ‚Äúdivorce to repent‚ÄĚ supposition has been a source of contention for a long time. Most Permanence advocates have not taught this doctrine because it is not instructed and unprecedented in scripture. The minority that teach this doctrine have whole heartedly abandoned biblical precedents for a solution of their understanding of how repentance should work itself out in this case. They believe repentance in this matter should look different NOW than it did in the Old Testament, they believe God requires now what He forbid before. Keep in mind that they are discarding biblical precedents and replacing it with their solution, they are speaking for God where God has not spoken. This zeal has a pharisaical tendency to add rules to the Word of God. The contention over this teaching is controversial, even for those who hold to other Permanence beliefs. There is nothing in the New Testament that should be construed as to reinterpret the Old Testament binding that occurred in remarriage.
Filler Sermon You might enjoy this sermon if you do not focus on trying to relate it to the topic. At some point a side note ceases to be a side note.
I appreciate the effort but the bulk of the sermon is about how the teaching of christianity cannot exist in a vacuum and must have fruit.
Excellent So many pastors who have no problem with divorce if the "exceptions" are met are the same pastors who marry two people using the vows of "til death do us part", when the fact is, they don't actually believe in those words or hold to them. The permanence view of which Voddie teaches is just that: you hold to the vow until death parts you from your spouse, not convenient exceptions that you squeeze out of the Bible.
